Red chili serves truly authentic Korean food. My husband and I both grew up in Asia and who would have thought that 38years later we would have found a place in northeast TN that serves food that brings us back in time! We usually share...More

Took a friend for a late lunch at the Red Chili. Portions small for price but flavors good. Do not take credit cards, cash or check only.

Food was amazingly good and flavorful. We had the crispy rice, Be-bim-bob with optional egg on top, and the kickin' chicken. All were outstanding. Restaurant is a bit small with limited seating and sparse hours but it is worth the visit. Call before you go:...More

Food and staff are amazing. You won't be disappointed. We ordered several appetizers and different dishes because some in our party had never been to Red Chili. Everyone was very pleased with the food and service we received.

When you enter Red Chili you are immediately subjected to an explosion of smells from the curry to the kimchi. It is a hidden delight of Asian food in the sleepy town of Elizabethton. A must try and then you will be hooked.
